Heart attack symptoms for men and women are similar, but there are some major differences for women that are important to know. Though both men and women may experience chest pressure, women may have a heart attack without the chest pressure. That is why it is important for women to be able to recognize the symptoms and take immediate action.
If you are a woman and have any of these signs, it is important that you don’t wait more than five minutes before calling for help. Call 9-1-1 and get to a hospital right away.
